Part of the 2014 Mikkeller LCBO feature. The beer pours a dark brown with black edges and a dark brown creamy cap. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses and peppers. The mouthfeel is full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is roasted malt, sweet chocolate, coffee, and a definite chipotle pepper note. A very good beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(330ml bottle from LCBO) Pours extremely dark brown with a moderate, fairly dense brown head. Aroma of dark and roasted malts, roast is medium, coffee and chocolate cake notes, a little smoke and chipotle heat as an undertone. On the palate, slightly sweet dark malt core, with a dark fruitiness, black coffee, moderate to high roast, a little coffee, smoky, chipotle flavor and moderate heat. The beer is quite dry from the middle on, heat from chipotles prominent and drying, some flavor and smoke too, dry roast bitterness supports that character. Finishes with a soft lingering burn from the peppers in the mouth and on the lips. Moderate body with moderate carb. Definitely a chili beer, this, but it’s a well balanced one with the porter body being just robust enough. I liked the way the nose conveyed chipotles without heat, and the palate had that nice heat in the mouth without burning the throat or stomach. Recommended brew.
